It all comes down to how it appears in the written score. I sort of feel sorry for those guitarists who know nothing but tab. Issues like Mick has raised here consistently bewilder those folks.

You are mistaken, unless the singer doesn't know what he's doing. The tone a fourth lower than an E is a B. The tone a fifth higher than an E is also a B. This is true always, without exception.

D to F# is a major third.
